Im too embarrassed by all the hippism to tell people about discordism

Wrong answer.  Poop your hippie religion all over them.  Then tell them to fuck off and die.

If nothing else, the sudden shift in gears should be worth a hoot.

i like this one and variations thereof:

"Take an ancient Greek deity, interpret her through some hippies, claim that doing this yields the only true answer because it doesn't actually answer anything. And that's Discordianism. If you want to know more, stick around. If you think I'm a psychopath, it probably isn't for you...."

also LMNOs one is really short and succinct and pretty much describes it for me, except for the activism bit, which is new but also important (and new)

"We tend to believe that the universe is unpredictable, and Order and Disorder are self-imposed constructs.  We also tend to believe in Thinking for Yourself, and finding revelation through argument."

My response to the "What is your relegion" question varies based upon my mood.

Bad Mood:

Fuck off!

Normal Mood:
Me: I'm a(n) Discordian Atheist (Atheist Discordian).
Them: *blank look*
Me: I do not believe in gods or goddesses, but if I did I would firmly believe that the universe was created by a crazy Greek woman.

Good Mood:
Me: I'm a Discordian Pirate.
Them: *blank look*
Me: *Steal something that belongs to the questioner then bugger the hell out of them while drunk on rum*

I do the polite/annoying version of Cain's technique. I am extremely dodgy about what religion I "belong to", and I've been practicing KYFMS since I first found Discordianism.

So far I have only introduced only one person to the PD and this website, because I trust her mightily, and I had great fun in Hawaii by being able to talk at length about religions with another one of my best friends, only to reveal later that I was not actually a member of whichever religion I happened to be talking about. Unfortunately she caught on and I wasn't able to pass myself off as a Buddhist, but it was highly amusing while it lasted.

 :thanks:  Believe it or not, I've actually used that phrase here before.

Discordians are forged in the fires of mental instability and militant subjectivism. Alcohol seems to help too.

      It's not so much a religion

TGRR,
Doesn't mind 6 years of noobs who think we haven't read the PD.  No, really.  I like this shit.

Look on the bright side.

Atleast he hasn't mentioned cattle, asparagus, fascists, or real discordians.

I'd recommend Pepto-Bismol, but it won't help. The hate must be purged.

Always look on the bright side of fail, eh?

Gee whiz, don't get ya'll's panties in a bunch and derail the thread here on my account.

In unvacuous honesty I see Discordianism as the jazz of religions. I don't actually like jazz, but it represents to me the rawness of creativity and ideas, with no confusing or misinterpretable meaning. It just is, for the sake of is.
